The Bedford Land Trust has donated a bench at Pulpit Rock in honor of Ruth. Ruth was a Bedford Land Trust Trustee for many years. Her service to the organization included serving as its Chair in 2012 and 2013. Ruth greatly enjoyed the Pulpit Rock Conservation Area. During her time on the Bedford Land Trust, she oversaw the finalization of the conservation easement at Pulpit Rock granted to the Bedford Land Trust from the town of Bedford, to ensure the 338 acres of land will be conserved in its natural state for the benefit of future generations, a goal Ruth cared deeply about.
